BMW 1M E82: THE LITTLE GREAT TUNING PHASE II
Second study on the best elaborations of the BMW 1M E82
Today our journey continues among the best elaborated versions of the BMW 1M E82 proposing the versions of 3 fairly renowned German tuners.
KELLENERS SPORT KS1-S
In 2011, the German company Kelleners Sport, shortly after the presentation of the BMW 1M E82, prepared a new variant called the KS1-S.
Externally, a new aerodynamic carbon fiber body kit and new 20 "alloy wheels were added, while a new aluminum pedals and Alcantara sports seats were mounted in the cockpit.
The 3.0 hexacylinder engine was enhanced with a new electronic control unit and a new air filter to increase the power to 410 hp with 550 Nm of torque and to improve handling, new stiffened suspensions were installed.

ATT-TEC 1M E82
In 2012, the ATT-TEC tuner from Rastatt instead engaged in the creation of an extremely enhanced version of the vehicle from the mechanical point of view.
Recognizable for the new 20 "alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, the car has been equipped with new sports suspensions made by KW that can be adjusted to three different settings.
In addition, the propulsion unit was developed with a new electronic control unit and an Akrapovich exhaust system to increase the power from 340 to 460 hp.
MANHART RACING MH1 S BITURBO
Even more extreme was the version created by Manhart in the same year, which was called MH1 S Biturbo.
Aesthetically, an aerodynamic carbon fiber body kit and 20 "alloy wheels were also adopted here, but this time they were wrapped in Continental Sport Contact tires.
The cockpit had aluminum inserts and Alcantara seats, but compared to the other variants, a new liquid crystal TFT screen had been added to replace the previous analog indicators.
The 3.0 hexacylinder engine
The engine was able to produce the power of 465 hp thanks to the installation of a carbon airbox, a stainless steel exhaust system and a new cooling system which allowed to lower the acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h of the 1M at 4 seconds.

The work done by Manhart's technicians seems the most complete, but which one do you prefer of the three?
